I've gotta say. I hated Steam in the beginning. I really did. However, over the years they have grown on me. Kinda like a fungus, or a plague. Now I purchase almost everything on Steam. Game for Windows however. Good riddens to bad rubbish!

Sorry we know the option is there. But I have tried that with other games but steam still forces the update.

At least it better than Uplay and Origin.
They are horrible platforms.

Origin is a memory hog, terrible to navigate and buggy as hell, Uplay is just plan dumb, but to save a few $$$ on games I sometime buy Uplay keys that don't bloody work in STEAM.

If it was up to me I'd have every game through STEAM, its come a long way since its 2004 release.

I have never seen my Origin hoging my mem.

Currently right now steam is using 100k more than origin and they ar both doing zip

What exactly is your problem with Steam?

Hi,

I have been using Steam ever since it came out. I have to admit that sometimes it ****ed me off so much that I would uninstall it and not bother with it for a few years, before re-installing it again.

Initially I had Steam crashing out on me and on several occasions it would crash out my computer. If memory serves, once it even caused a BSOD on one of my earlier machines.

I am still using it today, however I have figured out exactly what ticks me off the most about this platform.

1). When I select the option to not update the game it only lasts until the developers release an update, at which point Steam will update the game when I try to play it again. When I first saw this option I assumed that is means that the game will never be updated unless I tell it to do so in the future, but now I know that I am wrong. This option really steams me up (pun intended). As a side note, when I select a similar option in Origin, the game is never updated.

2). When I go offline and play Steam offline I can only do so for about 7 days. After that time, Steam asks me to go online by saying that there are no login credentials stored on my machine, even though that option is enabled in the client. On Origin and Uplay I can stay offline forever, as those platforms never expire like Steam does.

3). Finally the last gripe that I have with this or any other digital platform - when I buy a game on Steam I am actually not purchasing a game per se, but rather the right to play a game. In other words, I am purchasing a license to use a particular product rather than the actual product itself. I personally prefer the old days when I could get a physical copy of the game on disc (and no - I do not consider games for Steam on discs as a physical copy).

Just my two cents worth here. Enjoy the rest of your day!

Steam works well for me , as does gamersgate, or gog

i have i think 120 games on disc, if i want to play them i need to search for updates, patches all over the net, which is bothersome, with steam gg and gog i never have those update problems, so yup they are working very well for me.
